Ep. 165 Grieving Teens - Heidi Benjaminsen Coaching

Ep. 165 Grieving Teens

Life incudes loss and our teens need us to show them how to feel, process and manage deep sorry and grief.  Helping them learn to process this human emotion (and not avoid it), sets them up in life to know how to process, feel and handle the inevitable grief that that will encounter.

Listen as Heidi shares five tips and tools to use as our teens experience grief and loss.  Our teens need us to validate and normalize these hard emotions and sit with them so they are not alone in these experiences.  Let your teens see you be sad and let them see the strength and courage in being sad and asking for help.  Listen to hear a lot of examples of what to say and what not to say.  Do NOT try to make them feel better – this makes their nervous system think these negative emotions are something and avoid and buffer from (which makes them “stay” longer).

The more comfortable we are allowing our teens to be uncomfortable and feel grief, the more maturely they will learn to process emotions.  And the quicker they will move through the harder emotions.

Hi, I'm Heidi

I help mothers of teenagers create inner confidence, calm and happiness.  The more anchored a mother is, the more secure her children will feel.  Calm is contagious.
